Magnetic 5" x 5" Travel Chess set
Magnetic 5" x 5" Travel Chess set
This quality magnetic 5" x 5" travel chess set is a very popular size and offered at a really great price. It is constructed of boxwood and sheeshamwood board and has a sliding storage tray which accommodates the magnetic chess pieces.

Although the chessmen are small they are well carved with excellent detail! They are made with powerful magnets such that the set can easily be turned upside down, knocked, jostled - typical of childs play and yet the pieces on this magnetic chess set will remain in place. The pieces can still easily be moved from square to square without any discernable drag from the magnets. The board is thick, impressive and highly glossed. We think highly of this little travel set which measures just 5 inches by 5 inches.

A pleasant surprise; it's a lovely set.
Compact,solidly built,looks great.
A worthwhile purchase. Would highly recommend (and I'm a fuss-pot)!

Great magnetics and aesthetics

This set is perfect for travel, or simply for curling up with in a chair along with a book of famous chess games or the like.

Its magnets do not allow slip even when turned sideways/upside down and moderately shaken or tapped, yet they do not provide difficulty by sticking together too hard.

The pieces are easily distinguishable and handsomely glossed. Both board and pieces have the same quality of a larger set.

The drawer slides with enough drag to keep it from accidentally sliding out even when partially open and turned on its side; and in its closed position, there is a ball-lock mechanism to ensure that it stays closed.

I recommend this set unreservedly to anyone who has fingers agile enough to deal with 1/2" squares (13/16" king).
